  1. I had the privilege of seeing Drew's work in person at the Charlotte Scale Modelers club meeting last night. The work he has done on this old kit is just stunning. Far beyond my abilities (or level of patience). Drew, thanks for sharing your build with the club. Can't wait to see it finished. C2j
  2. Chris, I'm in Charlotte. PM me your mailing address. I can help. C2j
  3. Those are all really nicely done. I guess I'm partial to the H-19 for the colors. Good job! C2j
  4. I enjoy adding details that I know are there too, but I'd have to ask myself how much will be visible without picking up the model and using a flashlight to peer through the windscreen? C2j
  5. Looks like Merlin worked his magic and turned that HC3 into a UH-1... C2j
  6. WOW !! No need for Quinta Studio cockpit when you are doing the painting. That looks really good. Canopy open or closed? C2j
  7. Welcome back to the hobby! A great tool for information about kits is Scalemates.com . It will show you all the boxings, available aftermarkte parts and decals. Very useful. Here is a link to the 1/48 Hasegawa P-40 page: https://www.scalemates.com/search.php?fkSECTION[]=All&q=1%2F48+Hasegawa&fkCOMPNAME[]="Hasegawa"&fkGROUPS[]="Aircraft"&fkCATNAME[]="Propeller"&fkTYPEGROUP[]="Curtiss P-40 Warhawk" C2j
  8. Let me be the first to congratulate you on a fantastic, museum quality build of the SH-60!! I've kept up with this thread for several reasons - the high quality of your workmanship, the "little things" you brought to the build that lifted it WAY above average and your perseverance. I can only dream of a build that nice. Again, congratulations. C2j
  9. The leading edge of the flaps you are cutting away rest under the trailing edge of the top skin / spoilers thus the bottom leading edge of the flap sections is further forward. You can see in the last picture the small amount of flap that still needs to be cut away. Looking at this picture, you can see from the rub marks just how much of the flap is under the top skin / spoiler when retracted. C2j
  10. I'm aware of the physical structure of the fuselage side and that a window opening could be made just forward of the door, but I'm asking if anybody knows WHY there is a difference in these installations? C2j
  11. You are doing such a fantastic job on this build that my comments are probably useless, but looking at the three pics I posted above, I don't see panel lines? C2j
  12. Light beige. or dirty white. C2j
  13. I have always been under the impression that the old Monogram military vehicles were all 1/32. Scalemates says some are 1/32 and some are 1/35. When I saw your request this is what I thought of: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/monogram-6400-troop-carrier--265093 Apparently Renwal made several vehicles in 1/32: https://www.scalemates.com/search.php?fkSECTION[]=All&q=1%2F32+Army+truck C2j
  14. 1/1 scale aircraft motteling, how the US Navy really gets that appearance ... C2j
  15. So..., this Col. Scott Hasegawa. Was he a Japanese American pilot? LOL! Nice job. C2j
  16. There are at least three listed on Scalemates... C2j

    Yes. The most noticeable difference is the canopy. The early E-3 was unarmored windscreen and the center (opening) had rounded upper corners and no head armor. Later E-3's were field modified with head armor and windscreen. The E-4's had heavier canopy framing and angular corners for the center section. E-4 head armor was standard. Check your specific build for propeller spinner differences. C2j
  18. Well, I'm not any type of authority, I did NOT stay at a Holiday Inn last night, but I have spent time down the Google rabbit hole. I believe that in the time frame that "Kee Bird" was flying, the USAF was NOT using fluorescent paint for high visibility schemes. I believe the red/orange hi-visibility color was known as "International Orange" (though in my opinion it looks more red). Try this link for Sovern Color Coats: https://www.arizonahobbies.com/US-Air-Force-INTERNATIONAL-ORANGE-FS-12197-2-oz_p_4600.html C2j
  19. Hey, HEY! Don't rush him! C2j
  20. Dai Phan Could you scan the decal sheet and "fix" the green and print a "fixed" copy? Yes, it would take some patience. Maybe you could scan and have someone with a Circuit Cutter cut out some masks to spray? C2j
  21. I have a complete sheet for the Revell/Monogram kit. Yours for the asking and a PM'd address... Monogram Huey Hog.pdf C2j
